Here is an article about Maisuradze and partner: http://www.team-russia2014.ru/article/figur/5147.html

He says that they made quick progress despite having teamed up only two months ago. They work with Artur Dmitriev, their SP - Kalinka, LP - Take Five, first competition at the Russian Cup series in December in Moscow.



"Take Five", the jazz single? (It's the only "Take Five" I know of.) I love jazz music, and I'm looking forward to seeing the program.
Thanks for the summary. :)

Well Domnina hasn't officially retired yet... (She and Maxim are still reserve skaters even though they're effectively retired)

haha, this would be the gag of the year, if domnina with whomever will come back 2014.

i personally like dom/sha, but i donīt think the russian fed will set on this really dark horse :D

I doubt that Lubov will have the same success as Marina did.

I don't care, she's so much better than some of the pair skaters we have, that her presence could help the other realize what's necessary for pairs skating... :)

I honestly think that her coming back tomorrow with a good partner would give Russia a better chance at a medal in Ice Dance than any of the other three teams. Although I feel like Zhulin has a small chance with Bobrova and Soloviev, I don't really think they have enough time to get on the judges good side whereas Domnina would automatically get amazing PCS because of her rep.

Honestly, I agree. Even with Kostomarov. :o

Or Khoklova :lol:
I'd rather Navka and Kostomarov come back and win gold in Sochi. But only if she wears her headband in both the SD and the FD.

3rd place is still open
though I think it ill be a battle for B/S and I/K for Russian No. 1

I am interested on how I/K will be scored this season, this season
will be their deciding factor where they will stand in Russian Team and on World rankings for Olympics season

thanks for the updates..

looking forward too see nodari and lubov with their new partners.
woukd be great if the russian fed would release her.

and sad about mukhortova, all the divas are gone :D

I miss Khokhlova and Mukhortova, such a waste of young competitive talent.

I'm happy Lubov can compete next year.

I am still heart broken over Russia losing Lubov. She is the closest thing to Katia Gordeeva. Even though Maisuradze could never be compared with Sergei, she could have found a good partner and a great coach (Moskvina) in Russia. Now it's hard to tell how she will do in the long run. I like Martiusheva-Rogonov, but I don't have much faith in them because although they are beautiful to watch, they have always struggled with their technical elements. Plus, she does not have the kind of personality on the ice that Lubov has.

I am really looking forward to seeing Lubov & her new partner in some Yt clips.

I think she may not be as successful in pairs (skating for France) as Marina was in ice dance because the Russian pairs field is usually deeper. The ice dance field was not strong after K&O had to retire.

Of course right now she is lucky not to be an ice dancer because ID is dominated by NA teams.
